The following are some of the most commonly asked questions by friends and fans of Rocky Ridge Farm. If your question isn’t answered here, please contact us.
Is your farm organic?
The organic label provided by the USDA is a good starting point, but unfortunately it only tells you about what was kept out of your food (pesticides etc.), it tells you nothing about how the animal was raised or what went into that food to make it better. We have not spent the money to earn that certification. What we like to say is that we are "beyond organic".
What is the cutoff to receive orders this week?
In order to get your order on any given week, our order cutoff is Sunday at 5 PM.
Do you offer farm pickup?
We offer farm pickup if you prefer to save on shipping costs, please call to set up a time, 845-258-0742.
What makes your meat different?
Our animals live 24/7 outside on pasture. We rotate them onto fresh pasture daily which completely eliminates the need for medications and helps put manure where it belongs! The feed is clean and our meat is higher in all vitamins.
Do you offer farm tours?
Absolutely! We would love to have you out to the farm. As a matter of fact, we think that transparency is the true solution to fixing the American food system. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a date!
Do you ship with dry ice?
We pack all of our boxes with recyclable insulated liners, as well as dry ice. We calculate the dry ice needs for each individual address to ensure you receive your meat perfectly frozen. It is very common for the dry ice in your package to have dissipated by the time it arrives to you. As long as the meat is still cold to the touch, the products have not been compromised.
